Automotive - alternative powertrains in support of the green transition

Automotive - alternative powertrains in support of the green transition

EU - AU Business Summit Webinar - 29 November 11h00 -12h00 SAST

There are great expectations from a multitude of stakeholders in and external to Africa (including African governments) to leapfrog to Electric Vehicles. Whilst Africa moves along the journey of reducing emissions and towards electrification a mix of alternate powertrains will need to coexist and to cater to the wide variety of vehicle segments based on their specific needs and uses.

The objective of the panel will be to engage on the various powertrain and mobility considerations citing examples where they could best serve the specific purpose in Africa. Powertrain technology will evolve over time and may differ between various modes and locations of transport e.g. private vs public, urban vs rural, 4 wheeler vs 2/3 wheeler. With the drive to reduce emissions the panel will also engage on:

  • How to eliminate the dumping of used ICE vehicles from developed countries that are emission unfriendly and not safe/roadworthy. This ICE challenge will accelerate with the drive to electrify developed economies around the world.

Speakers will include:-

  • Ms Cristina Miranda Gozalvez, Head of Unit, DG TRADE, EU Commission Business
  • Dr Gainmore Zanamwe, Senior Manager (Trade Facilitation), African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank)
  • Mr Badreiddine M. Mansouri, Managing Director, Sub Sahara Africa, Stellantis
  • Dr Markus Thill, President, Region Africa, Bosch
  • Mr Kabelo Rabotho, Managing Director, South Africa, Nissan Motor Corporation

The webinar will be moderated by Ms Fifi Peters, CNBC Africa.
